After a clinical victory over Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals is set to host Delhi Capitals in their next league fixture. The hosts will be determined to get their campaign back to track following a poor start while Delhi Capitals will be eyeing win this match and seal the top spot in the points table. Both the teams will meet at Jaipur for the first time in this tournament.

Rajasthan Royals have had a topsy-turvy campaign so far in this edition the IPL. Besides giving some good performances, they are still languishing in the second last spot in the points table. Steven Smith has been appointed the new leader for the home side after the former skipper, Ajinkya Rahane stepped down. That move turned out to be excellent as the Aussie led them to their third win of this season against the mighty Mumbai Indians. Rajasthan Royals would be hoping to keep their winning momentum going when they take on the Capitals.

On the contrary, Delhi Capitals have been in impressive form so far in this tournament. With six wins and four defeats in their ten outings, the visitors are sitting comfortably on the third spot in the league standings. Shreyas Iyer is leading his troops from the front both with his bat and on-field captaincy. Delhi Capitals must be looking to grab this opportunity and climb the top of the ladder as CSK dropped points last night.
